with this using the bits of Vws I have scrounged here and there, Dub-cycle!
Have done a few of these frames with the laid back seat post, just put a pizza cut down
the bottom of the seat tube then cut either side of the parallel tubes at the top bend back
and fill the gap with a bit of scrape tube. Scuse the welds only got a stick welder!
Cut up a damaged 60's bumper to use as a fender.
One of my Prized bits a flying VW bonnet emblem, goes great on a bike.
Fake plywood tank with VW cut into it, stowage basket with various Vw bits hanging off it.
Recently took this thing to the next level, she's getting a bit weighty, definitely a show pony!
So to go with my flying VW added a Split Kombi indicator lens for headlight, 61 Beetle indicator
for fender light, sill mirror and 60's steering wheel.
Put a lid on the rear basket and dressed her up with late Kombi badge, Beetle Script, the
latch is from my 74 Bay I had and scored some 50/50 tail lights to go with the Ghia tailight.
